Spring semester meeting dates

The committee discussed possible meeting dates and voted to meet on the following days:  March 25,  April 5, April 18, and May 2.  All meetings will be at 2:30 p.m. and will be held in the Behmler Conference Room.

Strategic Three-Year Plan

The committee discussed how to incorporate the suggestions from Campus Assembly.  Crandall wondered how the committee should handle the question regarding implementation.  He was hoping for back-up from the administration to let Assembly members know the committee is doing what the chancellor asked us to do.  Angell believes there needs to be dialog opened up to the campus.   Strand added that if the previous strategic plan did not contain the  implementation plan, it wasn't necessary to do it now.  Schwaller added the committee presented a good strategic plan and suggested that perhaps in 2005 we could have a strategic long-range planning exercise.  The current plan does not micromanage and it shouldn't.  He believes the committee should focus on what the plan is and not what it isn't.  The committee made several changes based on feedback from Assembly.

Kuchenreuther suggested the committee begin discussion of implementation strategies at the next meeting.
